Spitfire Co-Belligerent

Another of fifty-three Spitfire V delivered to Regia Aeronautica Co-Belligerent and assigned to 20th Gruppo of 51st Stormo. The aircraft in foreground of the photo, perhaps taken at Lecce-Galatina Airfiield after the Autumn 1944, is in maintenance (note a panel of engine cowling removed and ground crew working on the propeller). This aircraft has a dual color tone camouflage while the Spit in background is complete olive drab. Victor Sierra
